about you in that regard. >> glory days. >> hal: by the way in shocking news -- paul ryan hated obama's speech. he accused the president of using a strawman argument. >> the president is a proud and competent liberal progressive. he invoked the constitution of the declaration at times which are something that everybody likes to hear, especially conservatives. but he invoked them as a means to sort of legitimize the agenda he has going forward which was you know, fairly partisan. very ideology for sure. and you know, it doesn't surprise me he did that because he's basically saying i'm a govern and i'm going to govern as a liberal and i won. >> exactly. your point is? >> he ran as a liberal. he won as a liberal. >> liberals wouldn't say he ran as a liberal. they wouldn't say that at all. >> nor would they say the speech was overtly liberal. there are two people involved in a communication exchange. the person speaking and the person listening and both play a part in the conversation. and it should some as no surprise that paul ryan hears what he wants to hear. and his former would-be bo

[ laughter ] >> john: he brought a chart. i loved it. that's a way to win the tea party back after voting for taxes on the wealthy. bring a chart. that worked for ross perot. >> here's the deal see! >> john: we're lucky because john mccain made a rare sunday morning talk show appearance. for those of you who don't know, john mccain has in his house he sleeps in the attic and he has a pole to slide down and a red phone in case a sunday morning show calls. [ laughter ] >> john: so every week, the pole gets a ride. he's there. we'll be playing some clips from him. today, we have to have a bit of a funeral for sarah palin on fox news. >> i don't know. i would love to think that we've seen the last of her but i don't think so. >> john: i don't think so either. >> i don't think so. >> we have speculation coming out she may pop up on another
but with exceptions. only 9% say abortion should always be illegal without any exceptions lookin' at you paul ryan. no surprise then that when asked if they would like the supreme court to completely overturn roe v. wade, majorities in three polls say no way. less than a quarter want roe overturned in the nbc "wall street journal" poll. 70% say no. less than a third in a recent pew poll want roe removed. 63% say no. the most recent gallup show show similar numbers with 18% saying they have no opinion on the issue. thanks for participating in democracy, guys. but the good news, ruth bader ginsburg can finally pick out the retirement villa. while the national numbers show abortion rights with solid support, conservative state governments are moving the other way. according to the guttmacher institute which follows the trends 19 states last year passed a total of 43 provisions aimed at restricts access to abortion including laws that impose mandatory unnecessary ultrasound procedures on women seeking abortions including the invasive transvaginal procedure. laws providing abortion providers make fetal
forcefully against the ryan budget. but i do believe that when it comes to the essential elements of life, that maybe they can hear this message. it's so direct. it's so imperative. it is at the heart of our faith. >> john: walking the walk, sister simone campbell, executive director of network and a leader in the movement to renew gun control in this country. sister, thank you so much. i hope you'll come back on the program. >> it is an honor to be with you. >> john: thank you. now, women will now be allowed in combat or rather we're finally admitting that women alreadyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy [ voice of dennis ] ...safe driving bonus check? every six months without an accident, allstate sends a check. ok. [ voice of dennis ] silence. are you in good hands? >> john: first the gays, now the girls. in a dramatic policy change, at the urging of the joint chiefs, defense secretary leon panetta lifted the ban on female service members in combat roles. wait! there is a ban on women in combat roles? that may come as a surprise to the 800 women injured in iraq or afghanistan or to the fami
's future. >> stephanie: yeah, paul ryan had a very bad day yesterday. because it was a reputation of all of those ideas about the social safety nets and -- yeah. the president again. >> obama: the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security. these things do not zap our initiatives. they strengthen us. [ cheers and applause ] >> obama: they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> stephanie: boo-yaw. >> what about support. >> stephanie: i have a serious and thoughtful plan. [ laughter ] >> can i sit at the big table? >> stephanie: we have to get serious about the safety nets. yeah, i would give anything to see what was in the thought bubble. >> yeah. bzzzzzzz. >> stephanie: yeah because that was a boo-yaw, because that was their whole argument. >> yeah. >> stephanie: we're moochers we're 47%. >> no wander mittens didn't show. that makes me feel bad about myself. i felt an emotion. what was that. [ mocking laughter ] >> normally my indifference is exactly the right height. [ moc
and the central theme of the campaign. remember how paul ryan and mitt romney talked about the takers? well the president addressed that. >> obama: we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid, and social security, these things do not sap our initiative they strengthen us. [applause] they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> cenk: see, that right there is the moment of the speech. because if you listen to it, it sounds great. if he follows through and protects medicare, social security and medicaid fantastic. that's why he won the election, and he's repeating it again. but look at the reaction. in the middle of that speech he's negotiating with the republicans on possibly reducing medicare medicaid and possibly reducing social security. i'll judge him by his actions not on his words, even though they were great today. final one classic pres
the compromise will happen. we'll see--the house will come up with their paul ryan budget on steroids that they're planning right now and the senate will have to find compromise or common ground that the white house can agree to as well, and then we'll be back where we were at the end of 2011. i think the republicans definitely do--are taking a moment to regroup so they can fight that battle, and it will be a similar battle to the ones we've seen before. >> cenk: grace wyler, michael shure, we appreciate it. mark my words, they will shut the government down. they will do whatever they need to do. they will be as obstinate as humanly possible. they will sacrifice everything, the republicans will. the only thing they will not sacrifice are the bondholders who are their bosses. all right when we come back, a gun buy back in los angeles actually brought in rpgs rocket propelled grenades. is it a smart idea to do that or not? we'll talk to the guy running the program when we return. >> shotguns, pistols and even assault rifles, some rusted, some brand new. la county sheriff deputy stacked them. the
slam breakfast they'll alet paul ryan come to their table and deny them medicare and then applesbee's wants you to know that for a limited time all chicken hawks get a free plate of chicken wings, and if you might consider meeting at the georgetown chili chili's where the valley pinot poppers are so deliciously undocumented. and hey, for all you southern conservatives, all you patriots who defend the confederate flag, thewell
because i'm so fed up with paul ryan the ron paul -- ron johnson scott walker -- i'm done. i'm done. >> stephanie: no. no. no. i just got to meet tammy baldwin in washington. >> i love tammy bald win. i will support her from louisiana. >> stephanie: louisiana! >> listen, if you are going to leave wisconsin, blame it on the weather. >> caller: i'm bigger than bobby jindal. i can kick his ass. i have no worry there -- >> stephanie: when you are moving to louisiana -- >> they have more fun down there. but i respect your decision however if you want to leave leave because of the weather not because of the politicians. there are so many progressive and anti-evil people in wisconsin that's where our sexy liberal tour began. they need you there. we need cool people in the midwest. we need cool people in the cities -- >> stephanie: yeah don't be hypnotized by the bp commercial -- >> i didn't decide if it -- is mississippi better since bp spilled their oil, no alabama is better, you both are wrong, texas is better since bp spilled its oil. >> and the seafood is delicious.
.o.p. caucus even paul ryan voted with the president on that their bluff has been called on the debt ceiling. we don't want to shut down the government. so, it looks like republicans are fighting among themselves. so this debate is already underway in the republican party. >> yeah. the. >> the president understands this. that combined with the 332 electoral votes he got, i think he is in a stronger -- i think he is in a stronger position now than he has been probably in four years. so he has less incentive now to be mr. nice than he has in quite some time. i think we are seeing that. >> right. i was going to say, i think we see that he senses that as well. >> yeah. >> he feels that he is projecting it. i don't know whether -- i forget whether you were there the day he announced his measures on gun violence for example. >> yeah. >> that was straight o here is what we are going to do. whereas before on so many issues, they might say, you and i both heard robert gibbs and jay carney say we can't push for that because congress has to do it and we don't ha
reduction and the way democrats do. we actually went through this with paul ryan's budget which was so egregious the leader of his party had to back away from it in the campaign. >> stephanie: yeah, it was seen as sort of a slap at the senate but they are calling it the no budget, no pay idea. it has been regarded by a lot of people as a gimmick. here they go. it's a new way to play some sort of partisan games right? >> exactly. and it doesn't guarantee that there will be a compromised budget agreement between the house and senate. they can pass one, just as the house can pass one. and that's why it made no sense. they tried to play gotcha with democratic members, because no matter how bad the legislation was, the no budget, no pay is a fairly pop idea. >> stephanie: i'm reading a story about it, i mean most adults would prefer a long-term solution. i know you are, but what am i? >> yeah. keith elson said to the caucus yesterday, we swear an oath to protect the constitution and to do our job. the idea that we have to basically blackmail ourselves into doing our job

-- this was a direct challenge to people like paul ryan and john boehner and mitch mcconnell. he said yeah, you guys want to sit around, you know, and look at your navals and have this on-going debate about what the role of government and he said that's not -- we can have that little debate but that's no substitute for action. >> obama: progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> bill: that's it. that was it. that's what that -- address yesterday, i started to call a sermon really was. was all about. the president says that is our role. that's what we believe. if we really believe in the constitution, then he went on, we'll talk more about this. we've got to do something. about poverty. we have to do something about the disadvantaged. we have to do something about seniors and social security and medicare and medicaid. we've got to do something about gay rights. the first time any president's ever mentioned that. he came out and said if we really believe in that constitution, we shouldn't be deba
